If there was ever anything you should not try at home, but is still fun to watch, it is this ridiculous whipped cream dipped in nitrogen challenge.

As much as this seems to be an awesome experiment, it can also be very dangerous.

Nitrogen becomes a liquid at a temperature between negative 320 and negative 346 degrees Fahrenheit. At room temperature, the nitrogen boils into nitrogen vapor, (condensing the moisture in the air around it), which you see in the video.

While not toxic, liquid nitrogen as it turns into a gas, increasing the level of nitrogen in the surrounding area. In other words, don't try this in a confined space.

Also, liquid nitrogen can destroy living tissue. So, because of the properties of nitrogen, this could, if not done properly, destroy the tissue it comes on contact with.

Liquid nitrogen has plenty of useful purposes, but fast freezing whipped cream, while seemingly fun, doesn't seem to be one of them.
